Association of properties to definitions

Check for Unique Object Occurrences

This module associates a boolean property NAMEUnique to object keys. It has the value 1 if the object occurs only once in the SYMBOL context NAMEUnique. It has the value 0 if it occurs more than once in the NAMEUnique context; otherwise the property is not set. The final value of the property is obtained by the attribute NAMEUnique.NAMEUnique, e.g. used to issue a message indicating multiple occurrences. (The same task can be solved using the more general module, See Count Occurrences of Objects.)

The module is instantiated by

   $/Prop/Unique.gnrc+instance=NAME +referto=KEY :inst

The role NAMERangeUnique is automatically associated to the grammar root (see Common Aspects of Property Modules).

The multiply defined check for our running example, as explained for the OccCnt module (see Count Occurrences of Objects), can be also achieved by:

      IF (NOT (THIS.Unique),
      message (ERROR, 
               CatStrInd ("identifier is multiply defined: ", 
               0, COORDREF));
